I will advise my comrades the "American scientific" site. Because you can listen to podcasts in English on a variety of topics in medicine, for example technological advances like the ones I talked about last week. But there are also quite interesting articles on tests conducted by American researchers example the first transplantation of the head that can normally be done this month. For me this site allows to improve its listening but also to learn new things at the same time.

For the agents below the link: https://www.scientificamerican.com

Hello everybody
The site i advise to you is soundcloud. It into english but you can switch it into french. Its a platform where people publish music (any kind). Both professional and public use it to share their songs on. To my opinion it is a good way to discover some new artists or some new kind. This is one of the main reason why i use it. I discovered a lot of rappers on it before they became more famous .The community is also active and welcoming.

The websites or applications i use the most are Spotify and Netflix.
The streaming music plateform Spotify save my money. For only 5€ a month, i can listen every music i want. I would spend a lot of money if I would buy every single or album i listen everyday.
I use Netflix almost everyday too. You can access to a lot of movies and series. I have discovered interesting things i would'nt have without Netfix. They should be careful about the increase of the costs of its services because it could push away consumers, even me.

hello,
Finally and fortunately i have found my password of this website Embarassed i feel so tired but i don't want to go to sleep, so i decide to write something here.
As for me, the most of the English websites that i often browse are those english shopping websites Arrow To tell the truth, i often browse the french websites to search for something. But i use an APP whose name is Quora to read in English, it's somewhere we can ask all the questions and we will get the answers from others. We can always find many interesting things here. And in my free time, i watch the small english movies in a chinese website, where there we can find some chinese captions so it's easier foe me to understand.

To be honest, I rarely use some sites in english but from now on I'll visit'em more often, thanks once more, John. Hm, maybe soundcloud.com: It's like some service where anyone can post his music or music of his favorite singers; It helps me a lot because I don't have to download, wait for it, memory of my phone isn't endless. So I advise you to check it out.
And maybe web-site "GQ" magazine. Sometimes I like find out there something interesting, something interesting. Doesn't matter if it's a style, hobbies, technologies or stories of travallers which motivate me. It's really interesting, i suppose. That's all

Hi!
Recently, I browsed a website named “ 9GAG ”. It is an online platform and social media website which is created in Hong Kong.

I found that this website is really interesting because of its funny GIF image and video clips. Most of those works are linked to stars, popular news, movies, cartoons and comics. And the uploaders are full of imagination and humor to use those resources, which allows them to be admitted and followed by not only the members of 9GAG, but also the users of Facebook and Instagram.

So if you are bored and tired sometimes, it will be a good chance to have a look at 9GAG to fun yourself!

Hello,everyone. I want to recommend Lang-8.com. This website was created in 2007 whose headquaters is in Japan. The principal idea of the site is language exchange for example, if you chose french when you register and then you chose english as the second language, you can receive the help of people whose mother language is english. They can help you correct your english thesis. Generally, you can receive your correction within 2 days. I think this website is very useful for us considering that we all learn a foreign language. What's more, we can help the people who learn our mother language, it's a win-win situation for the users.

Hello!
There are three websites I appreciate to consult when I want to practice my English.

The first one is VOA which stand for Voice of America. It’s a news website with a language learning section in which one we can read articles sorted in three different levels. Depending on the level the length of the articles and the level of vocabulary differ. It’s a useful website for those who want both learn English and read about the various topic. Plus the articles are transcribed and we can listen to an audio in which the articles are read by the journalist who wrote it.

The second is the New York Times website. It’s a reference in journalism and the English use to write the articles is sometimes challenging, at least for me, especially when the topic is complex. Such as science or politics.

The third one is Ted X Talks. The Ted X conferences are a good way to learn about the various topic and practice his listening comprehension. For those who are naturally curious, this website will satisfy their needs for knowledge.

Goodyear evening, everyone.
For this last topic, i don’t know much English website, but if i have to recommend one to your guys, i think TED is a posh choice. Like the mean thought of this website : ideas worth spreading. You can see many interesting and sagacious speeches. With different ideas which can cause us to think. cyclops

Hi,
For fans of football and humor I offer the site "Dirty Tackle". Warning to the tackle at the knees, Dirty Tackle gives you football, culture and lots of nonsense. You will find videos, articles to have fun and enjoy your loved sport.

HI,EVERYONE

I want to recommend you an online education website that offers online courses. And available in many languages such as English,Spanish,French,Chinese,Arabic,Russian,Portuguese,Turkish,Ukrainian and so on.

It works with universities and other organizations to offer online courses, specializations, and degrees in a variety of subjects, such as engineering, humanities, medicine, biology, social sciences, mathematics, business, computer science, digital marketing, data science, and others.These courses provide quizzes, weekly exercises, peer-graded assignments as well, and sometimes a final project or exam.I think it is very good for us to learn something.
